I have released a new version of Seed7: seed7_05_20111014.tgz In the
Seed7 programming language new statements and operators can be
declared easily. Types are first class objects and therefore
templates/generics need no special syntax. Object orientation is used
when it brings advantages and not in places when other solutions are
more obvious.

Seed7 is covered by the GPL (and LGPL for the Seed7 runtime library).

- The FAQ answer, explaining the -v option of the interpreter, was
- The function 'skipSpaceOrTab' was added to "scanstri.s7i".
- Documentation comments were added to "utf8.s7i".
- The compiler (comp.sd7) was improved to generate better code for
    the actions "INT_POW" and "STR_APPEND".
- The support for macros, in the "make7.sd7" utility, was improved.
- The files "drw_x11.c", "findid.h" and "scanner.c" were changed to
    reduce the number of warnings issured by clang.
- Functions were moved from "kbd_rtl.c" to the new file "gkb_rtl.c"
    and prototypes were moved from "kbd_rtl.h" to the new file
    "gkb_rtl.h". This was done together with changes in the makefiles,
    to avoid linker errors, when programs are compiled with -O2.
- The function 'processOptions' in "hi.c" was improved to support
    the new logic of the option -v.
